Sicilian Paradise – Between Luxury and Heritage

Sicilian Paradise - Between Luxury and Heritage

There are many reasons to visit Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean. Rich in history, landscapes of various kinds and culinary traditions influenced by the numerous people who have stepped foot on this magnificent land. But how can we enjoy the purity of its culture without renouncing to the five-star prestige and comfort with a modern twist? Take a look at the most exclusive and unique options we have selected for you. 

Villa Prestige

Villa Prestige stands on one of the most beautiful and fascinating promontories in Sicily. It is only 20 minutes away from Syracuse, an extraordinary city of art with one of the largest archaeological sites in Italy, and from the Island of Ortygia, the oldest part of the city. The building has a modern design, whose bright white color is exactly what characterizes the typical homes of the Region and of the Mediterranean. The seafront offers a deep sense of calm and relaxation, and the sound of the waves will be the soundtrack of your magical stay. Equipped with a seawater swimming pool, infinity pool, jacuzzi, tennis court and ping-pong table, Villa Prestige offers everything you need to make your holiday unforgettable.

The villa consists of four bedrooms all with en-suite bathroom or shower, satellite TV and independent air conditioning. The two sea view suites are both located on the ground floor and have direct access to the swimming pool, while the master suite is located on the first floor and ensures a breath-taking view thanks to the plate glass floor-to-ceiling windows. Finally, the last one, located in the annex a few meters from the main building, is equipped with an experience shower, private patio and access to the swimming pool and garden. The sunny living area boasts more relaxation solutions, a large fireplace with modern finishes and an open-space kitchen adjacent to the dining area. In addition to providing additional lounge and dining areas, the outdoor space is surrounded by the infinity pool whose design was inspired by the typical Arab gardens, as well as the conquering people of Sicily between 800 and 900 A.D. 

Now, close your eyes and let yourself be transported by the elegant and refined atmosphere of Villa Prestige!

Villa Orizzonte

The charming Villa Orizzonte is located in the unspoiled nature of the typical arid Sicilian countryside in the Val di Noto which in 2002 was included among the Italian sites of the UNESCO World Heritage List for its splendid late Baroque cities. From an aesthetic point of view, Villa Orizzonte could vaguely recall the famous dammuso, or rather the traditional architectural structures in stone of Arabian origin and typical of the island of Pantelleria. Obviously, the style that covers the entire building is more contemporary and sophisticated, but it resorts to details of Sicilian authenticity such as the dry-stone walls and the numerous olive trees in the outdoor area.

It is a two-storey building, where both floors are decorated with a unique and minimal style and expertly designed with materials that blend in with the surrounding areas, along with three cores linked by stairs and courtyards. The interior is composed of a very bright living area thanks to the presence of a large sliding glass door that allows you to enjoy the view of both the swimming pool and the vast countryside. The kitchen, equipped with all of the necessary appliances, and a modern dining room are one unit. The environment is particularly welcoming as the fireplace in the living area is located near comfortable sofas and chairs. The first sleeping quarter is reached via a corridor and steps and consists of two master bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and washing machine. Another staircase leads to two other bedrooms with bathrooms and panoramic views. Direct access to the private courtyard is possible from all four rooms.

As previously mentioned, the external area of Villa Orizzonte is characterized by typical elements of the Sicilian countryside that blend with the modernity of the building, creating a relaxing atmosphere. A shaded terrace and an elegant dining area next to a majestic carob tree allow you to enjoy a terrific landscape that becomes even more magical under the light of stars at late night. Finally, the stone swimming pool with panoramic view and barbecue area will make your holiday even more perfect.

If you donโ€™t want to miss the typical Sicilian atmosphere, Villa Orizzonte is what you really need.

Villa Essence

With its particularly contemporary dรฉcor that is almost reminiscent of a Hollywood luxury villa and immersed in the atmosphere of the countryside and relaxing Sicilian beaches, Villa Essence manages to harmonize two completely opposite environments. Its raised position allows you to enjoy a panoramic view of Porto Palo and Lido Fiori, or rather two hamlets of Menfi, a town in the province of Agrigento known for these magnificent seaside resorts and for its charming historic center characterized by numerous palaces, churches and towers.

The building is a triumph of glass windows that completely replace the walls, giving a constant brightness allowing to immerse oneself with the outdoor area. There are many access possibilities on this large open space whose fireplace positioned in the center divides the kitchen area from the living area. The latter leads to the three bedrooms, two of which enjoy a particular panoramic view of the sea and of the countryside. A basement area accessible from both the outside and the inside includes a spacious relaxation and recreational room with a pool table.

The vast outdoor area is characterized by typical Sicilian vegetation and majestic palm trees near the 6×12 meters swimming pool which can be reached via a long terrace. The canopy of the villa allows full relaxation and the possibility of eating meals in the shade while enjoying the view. Last but not least, to give an added value to Villa Essence is the barbecue and the brick-built wood-burning oven for lovers of outdoor cooking, typical of the summer.

Be enchanted by the fabulous Villa Essence!
